Alton Brown is Cool

Alton Brown‘s television show, “Good Eats“, is not only my favorite cooking show (sure, I have many)–but also one of my favorite TV shows in general. The guy is a genius at explaining superior cooking techniques in a way that’s entertaining–even humorous.

And he even has a weblog. I love this quote from a post of a few weeks back (he needs permalinks):

We are fat and sick and dying because we have handed a basic, fundamental and intimate function of life over to corporations.

He’s referring to the movie Supersize Me, a fascinating documentary about a guy who eats nothing but McDonalds for 30 days straight. The results are of course… interesting.

Also recommended is Alton’s Sodium Chloride Containment Unit. You know… for keeping your kosher salt in.
